Explosion leaves 21 Dead watching World Cup Game in Nigeria

21 Dead in Bombing of World Cup View Site in Nigeria

At least 21 people died in an explosion yesterday in Damaturu, northern Nigeria, while watching the FIFA World Cup game between Brazil and Mexico.

The explosion occurred at a designated meeting point Crossfire in Nayi-Nawa district of the capital of Yobe State, shortly after the start of the game Brazil-Mexico. Eye witnesses said the taxi packed with explosives was driven into the outdoor area where Nigerians were watching the game.

The attack occurred after two States have banned these centers not to display any football matches due to security concerns after previous attacks attributed to Islamist Boko Haram.

Security experts have warned that Islamic militants might attack crowds watching the World Cup in public places in Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda, as they did in 2010 in Uganda. Please, stay away from viewing centers during the game. Stay home and watch the game. The explosions in Kampala, Uganda, at two sites where people watched the 2010 World Cup final on TV killed 74 people

Earlier this month, at least 40 people were killed when a bomb exploded after having finished a game of football in the town of Mubi.

In May, another explosion outside a place where it was to be seen the final of the European Cup between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, caused three deaths in Jos, capital of Plateau state.
